If you’re browsing through wedding dress styles but aren’t sure which one to go for, then consider a beautiful one shoulder gown. With plenty of versatility when it comes to fabric and detail, an asymmetrical neckline can be a breath taking element to look for when choosing your dream dress. To help you in your search, we’ve compiled an edit of our favourite one shoulder wedding dresses.
Ivory & Co – Albany
The one shoulder Albany dress from Ivory & Co Bridal is just divine. We love everything about it – from the shoulder strap that leads into the pleated waistband to the slimming column silhouette. Pair this gown with a chic updo and some silver accessories.
Sophia Tolli – Rory
There’s no denying that the 'Rory' Y21501 wedding dress from Sophia Tolli has some serious wow factor. Exquisite hand beaded lace applique scatters the dress and leads into an asymmetrical illusion strap for a breath taking look. Another highlight of the dress is the spectacular chapel length train, which boasts the most delicate lace hem. Pair with big, bouncy hair swept to one side for a screen siren transformation.
Ivory & Co – Artemis
If one shoulder wedding dresses with illusion necklines appeal to you, then Ivory & Co’s Artemis wedding gown may be the one for you. The sparkly embellishment at the waist and the strap adds a glamorous touch and the ballgown skirt lends itself well to a winter celebration. If you look closer, you can admire the Swarovski rhinestones and beads in the embellishment.
Victoria Jane for Ronald Joyce – Style 17506
If you want a one shoulder wedding dress that’s a bit different, then take a look at the pretty style 17506 from Victoria Jane. The unusual asymmetrical overlay skims across the décolletage and flows out at the back for a distinct Grecian goddess vibe. Highlight the scattered embellishment with some delicate silver jewellery.
Monique Lhuillier – Lizzi
Available from the glamorous Monique Lhuillier spring 2016 collection, the Lizzi design is more of an off the shoulder wedding dress but it can be worn as a one shoulder style. The sheer overlay is a truly stunning element that gives the dress a sultry edge. We also love the dramatic mermaid skirt which completes this modern fairytale of a dress.
Ivory & Grace – Blossom
The Blossom dress from Ivory & Grace has a dreamy vibe to it that would make it an ideal beach wedding dress. Even if you’re not marrying in a venue by the sea, this dress will make you feel like a true Grecian goddess thanks to the cascading skirt layers and the pretty strap detail.
Alfred Angelo Modern Vintage – Style 8544
Did someone say Grecian wedding dress? If you’re looking for a romantic dress with a summery vibe to it, then style 8544 from Alfred Angelo would be perfect. The asymmetrical illusion overlay pairs so well with the sweetheart neckline and the sparkly detail is the cherry on top. Wear style 8544 with simple accessories and let the detail of it shine through.
Pronovias – Galera
It’s official, we’re in love with the Galera dress from Manuel Mota’s Pronovias collection! The glamorous chiffon skirt will skim over your body to create a streamlined silhouette below the thick silver waistband. The ruffled sleeve detail is a finishing touch that exudes romance.
Monique Lhuillier – Kit
Another one shoulder beauty from the Monique Lhuillier 2016 collection made it into our dress edit, and this time it’s the short and sweet Kit style. If you’re coveting a wedding dress that’s seriously on trend, then this style is perfect. This floral wedding dress also features bold cut detail at the side if you dare to bare some skin.
Pronovias – Vals
This floor length one shoulder overlay is the perfect contrast to the feathered Vals wedding dress from Pronovias. Unique wedding dresses with interesting fabrics and textures like this are perfect for the fashion forward bride. If you’ve already picked out your gown, take note from the Vals dress and transform it into a one shouldered design by using an asymmetrical overlay.
IR by Raimon Bundo – Rembrant
One shoulder necklines lend themselves well to boho wedding dresses, like the Rembrant wedding gown from IR by Raimon Bundo which we can’t stop staring at. The lace material extends to the cap sleeve shoulder, creating a look that’s so summery and unique. Think outside of the box for your wedding accessories and go for a vintage style head band.
Victoria Jane for Ronald Joyce – Style 17617
The fishtail skirt of the glamorous style 17617 from Victoria Jane contrasts well with the organza ruffled strap, creating an interesting silhouette. If you’re looking for a dramatic bridal look then this is the dress for you. The luxurious material wraps the body and holds it in for a beautifully fitted shape.
Victoria Jane for Ronald Joyce – Style 17413
Proving that one shoulder wedding dresses are versatile enough to suit every fabric, the 17413 wedding dress from Victoria Jane positively shines thanks to its luxurious satin finish. The eye catching pleats gather at the waist for a clever slimming effect, but it’s that ruffled floral strap that really steals the show. Keep your hair chic and fuss free to let the statement neckline do all the talking – don’t be afraid to go bold with your makeup though.
Sanyukta Shrestha – Sage
If you want to ensure that all eyes are on you on your wedding day, then a stunning dress like the Sage style from Sanyukta Shrestha would certainly have the desired effect. The fabric flowing from the asymmetrical neckline is a great alternative to wearing a wedding veil. The shape of the dress would suit a multitude of body shapes and the waistband pulls the dress in to give it all the definition it needs.
Ronald Joyce – Renee
This dress is so beautiful it will absolutely wow your partner and your guests. The ‘Renee’ 68064 style from Ronald Joyce is show stopping from top to bottom, but it’s that Grecian influenced shoulder cape that really makes us love this design. The asymmetrical neckline gives just the right balance with the magnificent mermaid skirt. Oh and for magpie brides, it’s worth noting that this style is available in light gold if you’re looking for sparkly wedding dresses.
